Serigne talks Wake offer

Demon Deacon offensive coordinator and tight ends coach Steed Lobotzke was so impressed with Cameron Serigne's performance Sunday, June 3 at Wake Forest's football camp that he offered him a scholarship afterward.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Ashburn (Va.) Briar Woods tight end said Lobotzke, who likes his size and speed, told him he would fit in well at H-Back.

"It was a great time," Serigne said. "He's a great guy. It was really good to work under him. I learned a lot. He's a really genuine guy. I really feel like I connected with him."

"I love it there [Wake]. I'm excited to have the opportunity to go there. Right now I'm still deciding. They're definitely really high up for me."

He also claims scholarship offers from Air Force, James Madison, Massachusetts and Ohio, while many other schools are showing interest. Serigne has also visited JMU, Ohio, UConn, Temple and ODU. The Commonwealth prospect, who will return to Wake the first week of July, is going to visit Virginia Sunday, June 10 and Stanford Wednesday, June 20.

"I've been in a lot of contact with both of them [UVA and Stanford]," Serigne said. "It's kind of similar to Wake Forest where I go to the camp.

Serigne plans to choose a school at the end of the summer. He added the school he chooses must offer a quality education on top of a successful football program with good people.

"The whole tour thing was kind of last minute," Serigne said. "Me and my dad sent my tape and wrote a little note. They [Wake's coaches] watched my tape the day before [Saturday, June 2] and I went to camp and came away with an offer, so I was very happy."

"[Coach Lobo likes] that I can move very well for my size, and I'm very versatile. I can split out and move back into the line too. He said I'm very fluid route-runner."

He caught 54 passes for 700 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. Briar Woods has won back-to-back state championships.

"I feel like my work-ethic sets me apart," Serigne said. "I always kind of play with a chip on my shoulder."
